Staff Reports | Digital Free Press

Cox Communications is announcing that its high-speed, fiber-based broadband service has been recognized by Ookla Speedtest for offering America’s fastest download speeds for the third quarter of 2023, achieving median speeds of 260.09 Mbps.

Ookla is a global leader in connectivity intelligence, according to a press release.

“The enhancements we continue making to our fiber-powered network are helping us deliver a world-class experience to our customers, with an eye on immense value and equipping home networks for the technologies of tomorrow,” said Susan Anable, Cox Phoenix market vice president. “This recognition from Ookla, the standard bearer for reliable internet speed testing, is a testament to investments we’ve made in Arizona and will continue to make in the coming years.”

In the last 10 years, Cox has invested more than $11 billion in network upgrades to deliver some of the most powerful internet, TV, phone, smart home, and mobile services and will continue making multibillion-dollar annual infrastructure investments over the next several years.

Cox: continued investment offers positive returns for customer base

This year, the company increased speeds for the majority of its customers, nearly three-quarters of whom now enjoy download speeds of a half-gigabyte or greater, Cox representatives tell the Arizona Digital Free Press.

Additionally, building upon its longstanding efforts to bridge the digital divide, Cox is expanding its footprint to reach underserved and rural communities in Arizona, including Arizona City, the city of Maricopa, San Manuel, Oracle, Black Canyon City, Congress, Huachuca City, Sun Lakes, SE Sierra Vista, Eloy, Toltec, Desert Hills, Three Points and Summit View.

Cox customers seeking to measure the speed of a connected device while at home should download the Ookla Speedtest app for their desktops and mobile devices.

Internet speed test results can vary based on several factors such as the devices themselves, the location of the equipment and sharing connections with other users. Most individual devices like smart phones, tablets and laptops aren’t capable of supporting super-fast speeds. The age and capabilities of the modem or router from which the test is run can also impact results.

For speed tiers above 100 Mbps, a router, modem or hardwired device must have a 1 Gbps Ethernet Port. It’s important to remember that most households can connect multiple devices at one time seamlessly with 250 Mbps download speeds.
